Drink of the Week: Wild Blossom Cider, "Rosé Cider"
Oct 20, 2018
What’s pink, bubbly, and fall’s new staple beverage? Wild Blossom Cider Rosé! This cider is the perfect thing to sip during all your favorite fall festivities, from apple picking to tailgating and more.
Read on to learn more about the drink itself, the cidery (/brewery) that crafted it, and the events they've got to offer Charlotte's active beer-lovers.
The Drink: Rosé Cider
This Rosé Cider is a refreshingly tart twist on our favorite blush beverage. It’s crafted with apples from the Pacific Northwest for a traditional cider base, along with notes of peaches and cranberries for added tartness and complexity. Whether you mix it to craft a seasonal cocktail or sip it solo, this Rosé Cider will not disappoint. And since it’s naturally gluten free and has a fraction of the carbs and calories in a traditional sparkling rosé wine, you can “rosé all day” without the guilt. So grab a glass or a can, and we’ll see you at Sycamore Brewing!
The Cidery: Wild Blossom Cider
Wild Blossom Cider is crafted in Sycamore’s 54,000 sq. ft. facility in North End. You can find two primary flavors of Wild Blossom Cider on tap at Sycamore Brewing: Rosé Cider and Brut Cider.
The Brut Cider has a tart apple finish with a resemblance to champagne. It's great for celebrations, or for apple picking -- or pretty much anything else. As for the Rosé Cider, now you’ve got the details. Both ciders are all natural, gluten-free and crafted with the finest ingredients in the Carolinas.
Bonus: every Tuesday, you can get wine, cider, and frosé at half price at Sycamore Brewing! You now know all of the cider options available, but you can also choose from Sycamore's wine selection, which includes: Canella Prosecco (Italy), Rotari Brut (Italy), La Galope Rose (France), Underwood Rosé Cans (Oregon), Acrobat Pinot Noir (Oregon), and Acrobat Pinot Gris (Oregon).
The Fitness Activities: Yoga & Run Club
You can join the Sycamore Brewing Run Club on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM and Saturdays at 11:30 AM for a 1, 3, or 5 mile route along the Light Rail Trail. The run itself is free to join, plus runners also get a 25% off coupon to use at Sycamore after they're done logging their miles.
Prefer to bend for your beer? Sycamore Brewing Yoga is back for the warm-weather months on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM in the grassy area behind the beer garden. Class is $10 for a drop-in (or lower with an NC Yoga Bar passport), and yogis get 25% off their first beer after class. Instructors vary each week, but this is always an all-levels class suitable for both beginners and seasoned yogis alike.
